Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency: In Delhi's GB Road, democracy fails to light up dark lives of sex workers
There is no change in the lives of nearly 1,850 sex workers of Garstin Bastion (GB) Road – renamed as Swami Shraddhanand Marg – part of Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency, one of the seven constituencies of Delhi.
Even though Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely has been pretty active, carrying out protests across the city on current issues like lack of power, water and rising prices, he has been unable to carry the senior leadership with him.
Congress MP Jai Prakash Agarwal won the elections for candidature from the Northeast Delhi Lok Sabha seat under primaries project, piloted by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.
Agarwal, who is not known to have a good equation with the outgoing Chief Minister, said the nature of defeat was "totally unexpected" which will be thoroughly examined by the party.
"There can be no indiscipline in the party, I will not tolerate it. I am not soft like Sonia", Rahul Gandhi was quoted as saying.
